Is it still possible, in our digital world of infinite data, that there is still a way to misstep into something secret and magical, then escape to tell off it? Would people believe it? Strange stories about a world full of arcane magic, and strange beings, and faerie tricksters, and wandering spirits, and all manner of creeping things that go bump in the night? Something, or somewhere, a person passes and when they turn to look again? It’s gone. The sort of things spoken about in hushed voices around campfires and the gentle sing-song whispers of a child’s faerie tale.
Why just tell these stories? Why not inspire them?
I aim to inspire new folklore with my work. I build beings, places, and experiences that feel as if someone is seeing the most brief sliver of a more mysterious, more fantastical world. For a fleeting moment, I am to give people the feeling that what they’re seeing should not be real; yet it is there all the same.
I use whatever materials are needed and available.
